Cook + Phillip

Someone once said that Sydney has more Olympic pools per capita than any other place in the world.  If that is true then it is odd given that Sydney has so many wonderful swimming spots at surf beaches and harbour beaches.

Cook + Phillip Aquatic and Fitness Centre is adjacent to St Mary's Cathedral.  It has a variety of swimming pools including a wave pool - where waves pummel patrons on the half hour - and river pool - where patrons are washed around a winding path.

Esther Williams
Above the Olympic Pool there are a series of commemorative paintings celebrating the life of Esther Williams - a Hollywood superstar of the 1940's.

Change rooms are clean, there is an outside seating area and cafe.

A great place for a family outing.
